GARNAUT STANDS FOR S.R.C. ELECTION ...fresher candidate makes a bid [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964

GARNAUT STANDS FOR S.R.C. ELECTION . . . fresher candidate makes a bid With the recent resignations of George Martin and John O'Kane from the S.R.C. many aspiring student politicians are set to contest for these now vacant positions. At the moment the i . strongest candidate is, surprisingly : enough, a fresher. He is Ross Gar naut, a Statistics Cadet I from Western Australia, I and his support (nomin ated Hartnell, seconded Thorn) is not to be taken lightly. Not only is he backed by some of the present S.R.C. strongmen, but he is sure to receive a vast majority of the fresher vote. This is cer tain both because he is a Fresher himself and be cause it was he who em erged -from a reasonably -comprehensive first year ? . pre-selection .ballot con ~ ?.

As a student he is pos . sibly one of the few excep ? . -itions . to ? a ? recent Woroni . editorial which . was greeted with great displeasure. He is on the committees of ...

Four Year Science Course? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964

FQur Year Science Course? A proposal to extend the B.Sc. degree from three to four years is currently under discussion by the Science Faculty. A final decision on the longer degree is expected this year, and the new course could be impleme nted as soon as 1966. I The DroDOsa.l. unprece dented in Australia, is a result of the widely held views ? that the ? present science course is too nar row and that at the end 'of three years ? a science graduate simply has not re ceived adequate training. When interviewed recent ly, Professor Dunbar stressed the increase in the volume : of .scientific ^know ledge over the paist recade. Science, he said, was growing so rapidly that the sheer body of knowledge was : forcing expansion. Honours students being comparatively well off, the proposed course would be designed to give the nor mal' pass graduate a better education. Some members of the staff, he -said, favoured a whole two yea.r general education before specializa tion, after ? the American |...

THE SAVAGE NOBLE TOLSTOY [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964

THE SAVAGE NOBLE TOLSTOY - by R. Jones Reading the average biography of Tol stoy, you are likely to feel that there should have been an eclipse, or some similar celestial portent, at his death. Such superhuman proportions did this man seem to assume during his lifetime, that to Gorkv God and Tolstoy were as 'two bears in one pit.' ' The writer ? of the two greatest novels in the Russian language; an anarchist -who was so. dangerous and influential that even the Tsar feared the conse quences of making a martyr of him; the propagandist for non-resistance to evil who regarded Gandhi aa a disciple; the excommunicated founder of ' a new semi mystical, semi-materialist Christianity with Taoist over- ' tones; the spiritual leader of; thousands who tried to follow the way he taught; the social reformer; the famine relief worker; the champion of the persecuted; the wealthy landlord who believed that property was a sin and wore peasant clothes; the educationalist, agricul turalist, linguist —...

WHITHER THE A.L.P.? [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964

WHITHER THE AX.P.? by C Lamb The defeat of the A.L.P. in the recent Victorian State Elections will cause a, fair amount of 'conster nation in the Labor Par-, ties of the neighbouring mainland States of New South Wales and South Australia, both of which must face the electors be fore March 3 next year,. There is special need for worry in N.S.W. where, the Labor Government is more unpopular (at least in the Sydney metropolitan area) than it has been for sortie time. There are a great many reasons . for this, the most important of ' them seemingly stemming from ? the 'arbitrary' treatment of the public by two of; the Ministers, these being the Minister for Labor and In . clustry (Mr. Maloney, M.L.C.) * and the Minister for Health (Mr. Sheahan, M.L.A. for Burrinjuck). in widely dif fering sections of the com munity' both these gentle ; men have acquired some notoriety for their actions — Mr. Maloney for his 'war' on the Independent Trader : through his shopping hours regulations; and 'M...

S.R.C. Stand on Car Parking [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964

S.R.C Stand on Car Parking The S.R.C. has appointed a sub committee to investigate and report on car parking in the University. Pointing to the space available in Canberra and the possible conflict in pol icy: between the University, the A.U.C. and the N.C.D.C., Thorne said that if ? the S.R.C. tackles the problem early, ;it may be able to in ; fiuence Council. 'If we had acted earlier on denomina tional colleges,', he, said, 'we may have got. some say.' Hartnell said that . a number of people HIGH in the administration, would like to see undergraduate cars banned from campus altogether. 'This,' he said (with a Churchillian air), was 'a thought derived from the past rather than the future; the fact we have to face in this af fluent society is that stud ents will have cars.' Kitchen pointed, to the .in efficiency of Canberra's pub lic transport and to the high percentage, of part-timers who would; not, be able to take a course at University without a car.

BUSH WEEK AND THE AUSTRALIAN ETHOS [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964

BUSH WEEK AND THE j AUSTRALIAN ETHOS I The university is shortly to indulge in its annual festival of light-heartecl, irrational, adolescent pranks. The public will, in the main, be amused, and may recall the pranks that they themselves played as students. Bush Week is accepted by the citizens of' Canberra ? as part of the: university year and they are pleased to . participate and to contribute .to the university charities. This is indeed commendable, but we must not let the desire for entertainment cloud the cultural inheritance which Bush Week was designed to remind us about. NED KELLY Australians differ from Americans in. that they have not yet reached the stage where they are pre pared to deify the pioneers. Ned Kelly has yet to reach the status of Davy Crockett or Buffalo Bill: Peter Lalor could well take a seat in the Australian Pan theon. Perhaps the time will come when Australians will attempt to dig up their folk heroes. Where will they start? Canberra could well be a foca-...

SCOTT SPEAKS I The recent resignation from the S.R.C. of £ Mr. George Martin is an insult to the voters who 5 supported Iiim in his election. S Students are entitled to expect an honest g effort by their representatives to work with the c S.li.C. Uy no stretch of the imagination can Mr. g Martin call his an honest effort after only a week g in office. e What were Mr. Martin's reasons for resign- £ ing as expressed in his letter oi' Jiily 3? g Perhaps the 'small-time committee', atmos- g plxere of the S.R.C. that Mr. Martin deplores* is the .jj , best way to run its affairs? Not everyone would £ desire 'a little more skullduggery.' What type of C t reasoned criticism is it to say that the S.R.C. is too 5 respectable? '* W'ould Mr. Martin desire more passion, more j excitement, more colour in the S.R.C. and its i ! affairs?

Australia's Problem in in South-East Asia [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964

Australia's Problem in in South -East Asia by A. J. Strickland In the last few months events -in -South-East Asia have developed, in ..such a way - to .challenge the .very basis . of Australian security thinking. i The main features of that j thinking are the ? trea ty ? ar 'rangements with the United ' states, ANZUS -and- SEATO. - .These treaties were designed [to prevent conflict and in i particular : Chinese aggres sion in the South Asian area. While SEATO was con-, ceived by. its architect, the late Mr.. Dulles, as contain ing Communist influence in ? the area, both the inclina tion of nations such as India and Indonesia and.. the stat us of na tions such as.. South Vietnam meant that only two Asian nations of the South-East Asia area were included: — Thailand and the Phillipines. The events of the last year have seen a continual deterioration in the political stability of the area and Australia is sup porting an American policy in Vietnam and Laos which is not accepted by most ...

SULLIVAN'S SWAMP... [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964

SULLIVAN'S SWAMP. . . \t is very easy to criticise, especially in a University with the grow ing pains that are being faced here. But something must be said — and . something must be done about the semi-oceanic conditions which appear on campus every time we have more than a few points of rain. In part this is due to the new .work being done — es pecially in front of the lib rary and across near the Haydon-Allen building. But even here it is surely not unreasonable to expect that some temporary measures ; could- have been taken to al leviate' the situation. Of course this would involve - some expense on the part of the University and some time on the part of one of our Administrative beauro crats, .but if the powers that be had to sit at their desks all day with wet feet they would soon appreciate the urgency of the situation. What is more disconcert ing, however,' is the state that the apparently per manent paths and walks have been allowed to de generate to. The paths from the Com...

The number of stu dents there for the speech, distributing leaflets and carrying placards was more like 30. By 'the time George Martin had finished . his speech a few more students had turned; up and some of tAe general public.

The Red Harp of Burma [Newspaper Article] — Woroni — 23 July 1964

The Red Harp of Burma Against the tumult caused by South East Asia's major trouble spots — Vietnam, Laos and Malaysia, smaller echoes of the strife which seems endemic to the region go un-noticed. At present, Burma seems to be the .scene of a significant de- . velopment. I No bombs have been | dropped, no monks inciner ated. Even the usual nation alist and revolutionary tir a'des have been lacking. But 'events may turn out to be [tip less startling and im portant. Burma's recent past ' lias not been' happy. The British took over the country in the i late .nineteenth century 1 simply because it constitut ed a threat to- their security in India. The ? unpopular British rule. lasted until. 1948. Its benefits were few.Politi cal .stability was . ; certainly not among them, for it was ?by a coup that its present ruler, General Ne ;: Win, gained power.' Burma's refusal to ' join S.E.A.T.O. in . 1954 was sup posedly based on a policy of nonalignment. Recent de velopments, however, have bee...
